Pin-trocity is what happens when your crafty plans from pinterest collide with reality. (Also called pin-tragedy and pinterest fail.)
I was excited to try an easy The Very Hungry Caterpillar craft I found on Toddler Approved.
It was quick and easy and Rowan loved it. He sorted the colored paper shapes some, but mostly liked putting stickers on it instead. Feeling quite pleased with both of us, I left it there while we had lunch. Rowan was leaning and reaching across the table as we’ve told him not to do as it endangers his water cup. We are all about natural consequences in our house, so I bit my tongue as he knocked the drink over. It got the colored shapes and part of the caterpillar wet, so Rowan and I discussed logically how his choice led to this result. He wasn’t too sad as he was on to playing with trucks and toys anyway. I had him sop up the standing water, and we left the craft (which was taped to the table) out to dry.
Later at dinner I moved the paper and discovered this.
